CELEB FOCUS: John Dumelo ‘The Ladies Fantasy’

He is like a girl's fantasy dropped from heaven; a tall, dark, and handsome man with a smooth style and a gentle voice. Without mincing words friends, John Dumelo is one of the latest screen idols to set hearts racing amongst the Ghanaian and Nigerian female population. John is a breath of fresh air and that spicy ingredient that makes you salivate all the time.

He the only son and the youngest of three children: Mr Dumelo debut in the movie industry when he was seven-year-old at Christ the King International School in Accra. While in the school, the producer from the GAMA Film company chose him, his elder sister and some other lucky kids to star in the movie ‘Baby Thief’ in 1991: with John eventually securing one of the lead roles in the movie as Saka.

After attending Achimota School and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology for high school and university education respectively, he appeared on several Ghanaian television programs including ‘Sun City’ and ‘About To Wed.’ However, his popularity reached a higher level when he made the transition from the small screen to the big screen.

Starring in top rated movies like ‘The Perfect Picture,’ ‘The King Is Mine,’ and ‘Chelsea’ have made Mr Dumelo a hot brand in the film industry. His incredible acting credentials attracted the Nigerian movie producers and today, he stands as one of the most sought after Ghanaian stars to work on the Nigerian soil.

In spite of his popularity, John remains humble and modest: “You know some people can get carried away when fame and fortune knocks on their door, making them lose focus of who they are and where they are coming from. I want to work hard to avoid that.”
That notwithstanding, such popularity in the film industry has only served to make him an equally hot topic within the media- he has been romantically linked to various co-stars, yet has denied all of such relationships.

He is also a philantropist and along with his acting career, John manages a real estate company, and partners an IT firm. Not only is this guy a handsome dude,  he is obviously a man of many talents whom the ladies can’t help but love.
